Polish Mission to Host 2 Week Exhibition of Polish artist Liliana Krynska January 22 through February 6

Orchard Lake, MI — Originally from Łodz, Poland, Krynska is a young and vibrant artist who began her professional career at Center for Creative Studies in Detroit. After earning her degree in Fine Arts and then spending five years in New York exhibiting her works, she earned her Masters in Art Theory from Goldsmiths College at the University of London. Drawing on her experiences in communist-era Poland, Liliana creates art that highlights the charged memory of a tragic and complicated time inspired by the still-scarred physical landscape. She writes, “I use these walls and their broken textures as inspiration for creating a personal visual language, with which I explore and question my own relationship with the past.” Having returned to her childhood in Łodz, today Liliana is a highly sought-after film scenographer in addition to her career as a professional artist.

The opening reception on January 22nd from 4pm to 9pm in the Adam Cardinal Maida Alumni Library will mark the opening of this prestigious exhibit. All are welcomed to this warm evening event, where Liliana will personally introduce everyone to her unique and exciting style over refreshments Over twenty paintings will be on continuous open display through Sunday February 6th.
